Openet has launched Openet Accelerate, a dedicated business unit focused on delivering service capability using automated, virtualized and cloud-based networks.
Located in Openet’s Dublin headquarters, the new unit will harness the latest technological innovation while developing disruptive, virtualized next-generation services including VoLTE and IoT.
Openet Accelerate is providing an adjunct approach to virtualization for service providers through its pioneering Service Capsule offerings.
These pre-integrated, pre-tested solutions enable telecoms operators to take advantage of NFV and cloud like deployments today, without the risks inherent with the massive transformation, procurement and organizational changes normally involved when adopting NFV.
Automated service provisioning, enabled by the business unit, will give service providers virtualization benefits such as service agility and improved time-to-market for new services.
This also allows providers to target new markets that were previously impossible due to the cost and difficulty of deployment.
“This new business unit is focused on the intelligent, business aware management of dynamic, automated software-centric networks to deliver end-to-end services,” Karin O’Shea, executive director of Openet Accelerate.
“Apart from our Service Capsule offerings, we provide the building blocks to enable CSPs, MVNx, enterprises, system integrators and virtual network functions vendors to solve specific problems when building their own solutions for automated software-centric networks,” said O’Shea.
In addition Openet Accelerate will provide strategic consultancy specializing in the business aware management of automated software-centric networks in areas such as use case innovation, NFV automation and VNF on-boarding.
